I think the well has run dry for a lot of property owners in Toledo.Many people have lost their jobs or have had to take pay cuts or pay freezes.Where do these people think we are going to come up with the extra money to support the schools.Public employees need to start paying more of their own health care and pensions.We in the private sector have had our pensions and our health subsidies taken away entirely and now will have to count more on social security,medicare and 401ks.A lot of us will have to work to 66 or beyond just to be able to pay for these property tax increases.Why should I have to work that long while teachers are retiring in their fifties?

Maybe the people would give TPS more money if they actually taught our children anything.

IF the levy passes - the "state" will cut your state funding the following year! IT'S A FACT!
